Reviews for the Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-51UC

Acer Aspire S13 review: Slim and savvily priced
Source: Pocket Lint English version
The Acer S13 has no major flaws other than a trackpad that may well get on your nerves for the first week or so. It's otherwise a terrific laptops that has everything you need in a portable computer - and all for an affordable price. A good screen, a decent processor, great battery life and a super-slim, light frame are all major benefits - some of which are class-leading for the price. Add the decent connectivity, comfy keyboard and decent speakers, and you have a real mid-range winner.

Model: The Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-51UC is a quality and decently priced ultrabook with good looks. Design is modern with clean edges and a brush metal finish inside. The all-black device comes with a solid carbon-fibre textured lid and a full-size chiclet keyboard. It has a typical mid-range laptop build quality, but this is not a deal breaker. The touchpad is a large one making navigation a breeze. Display on the Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-51UC is a 13.3 inch Active Matrix TFT Colour LCD with IPS and LED technology. Color accuracy can be better but the Full HD resolution somewhat makes up for it.

The 1.40 kg device comes pre-installed with Windows 10 and is a joy to be carried around due to its thin profile. There is an Intel Core-i5-6200U dual-core processor clocked at 2.30 GHz, 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM, an Intel HD Graphics 520 GPU and a 256 GB SSD as storage. The Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-51UC is equipped with a good array of ports; a USB Type-C port, 2 USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI out. Audio quality is decent, but do not expect anything above average. Battery life on the Acer Aspire S13 S5-371-51UC is suggested to be at around 11 hours with its 3-cell battery.

Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

6200U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

83.5%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
